August Wrap-up

August wrap-up

August was such a fun month and the weeks went so fast.. I started my new job! I’m now working in a secretarial role at a high school. I was very excited and a bit scared to start, because this job is so different from what I did before (I’m a social worker and I worked with teenagers with behavioral and psychiatric problems). I do like it, though!

Also the Boyfriend and I went to a Flogging Molly concert and we went on a beer tasting day-trip to Haarlem (we visited Uiltje and Jopen brewery-bars).

And.. I read some books!

Let’s take a look at the books I’ve read and bought in August!

    1. I did! The story is different than the Disney version, so that was interesting. And Beauty and the Beast is my all time favorite fairy tale.

  1. I still need to get to The Cheerleaders! I cant wait to see what you think of it!! My favorite book I snagged in August was Sweet Little Lies by Caz Frear, SO GOOD!
